Foundations of Buddhism: Exploring the Practice of Meditation and Early Teachings of the Buddha
Dr. Amelia Hall
November 8–10, 2019
This weekend will explore the core tenets of Buddhism for those who are interested in establishing a meditation practice as well those who have a current practice but want to learn more about the foundational philosophy and view of this tradition. What did the Buddha teach about walking a spiritual path? About the nature of our thoughts and emotions? How do we apply this wisdom in our everyday lives? This weekend will be a combination of talks on foundational Buddhist teachings, periods of meditation instruction, and group discussion. All are welcome, but this is especially for beginners.
